The lugs that come with the spacers are used to hold the spacers to the hub. Not sure about the centric ring.

Thanks OI.
Iím having a time finding answers about the ring.
Most of what I see shows using it on the rim.

I would think the ring should be used for your adapter. You can center your wheel on the lugs, but its real important to get your adapter centered on the hub, any variation will be magnified when you mount the wheel. My thoughts.

As for the nuts, if they're the same thread as your S10 wheel studs ( M12X1.5) they look like they could be used for those.

When I bought the adapters I contacted the company and they were the ones that said I would need the rings. And what size to get. So I agree with you about them going on the with the adapter, snopro. And the things Iíve seen with them being used in the rim is more about aftermarket rims being used with no adapters.
The lugs are the same thread pitch as the S 10 lugs.
They are flared more and perhaps slightly shorter which lead me to think they were to be used to hold the adapters on the hubs. Less chance of clearance issues that way.
Iím going to try to get the mock up tire and rim on one of the front hubs tomorrow.
Should be interesting as I will need to get in the floor to do it.🙀

More heat today. In a effort to do at least something on the car everyday I patterned the NOS parking light housings that have all the fasteners intact.
Now I know which holes I need to weld shut.
It started to cool down about 7:00 pm so I went back out with the intent of getting the Spacer/ adapter on and mounting the mock up tire.
Well.... that ainít happening.
That rim is frozen solid to the hub.
No amount of pounding on it with my sledge would budge it.
I guess Iíll try some heat on it tomorrow .
Thatís it for now.
Torchie.

Looks like it's stuck at the center register hole. I'd soak it with penetrating oil a day or two before I tried it again.
You might be able to put a small bottle jack behind one side and put pressure on one side, then whack the other with the sledge....

I've removed badly stuck tires like that before with a long bar for lots of leverage. That one looks particularly bad. Looks like you should plan on replacing your rotors if you weren't already.

The hub centric stuff is a royal pain anyway much less adding in the rust.
